This question was recently migrated from Electrical Engineering to Software Recommendations. It is asking for a software interface to view the serial output of a microcontroller.
It is certainly asking for a software recommendation, but I think it's much more applicable to an EE Forum than a software forum. The answers had more than 20 aggregate Upvotes in the EE Stack. I would liken the question to "Should I use MPLAB X or MPLAB v8 for developing microcontroller code." Definitely software related, but only for EE's :)
Am I incorrect? Does it matter?
